Hi from Arizona
Hi everyone, I've been around firearms for most of my life, but I'm New to handguns and cc.
I bought a Beretta Nano last month, and I've shot 300 rounds through it. I like it and it's comfortable to shoot, but it had failure to extract issues, so I sent it to Beretta for repair; they replaced the extractor, and the turnaround time was only 9 business days. I took it to the range yesterday and only had a couple of FTE errors out of 100 rounds, and I think the malfunctions were due to the ammo I was using (Winchester 115 gr. FMJ).
I plan on taking some shooting classes soon, and I read a lot about cc and watch a lot of you tube videos. Arizona is a constitutional carry state, but there are advantages to having a ccw permit, so I am taking a ccw class next month.
This forum is a great resource, and I am glad to be a member.
Bye for now,

I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.
